KARACHI (92 News) – PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto has said that the assault of a young women by a mob at Minar-e-Pakistan should shame every Pakistani.

In a message on Twitter, he said: " The assault of a young women by a mob at Minar-e-Pakistan should shame every Pakistani. It speaks to a rot in our society. Those responsible must be brought to justice. The women of Pakistan feel insecure and it is all our responsibility to ensure safety and equal rights to all."

In a tweet, Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari said that her ministry is in touch with the Punjab authorities to ensure strict action against perpetrators of the condemnable attack on a woman in Greater Iqbal Park Lahore. "Arrests made and FIRs done. The Ministry of Human Rights following up. But we need to try and change such violent behavioral patterns in our people."

Minister for Planning and Special Initiatives Asad Umar said: "What happened at Minar-e-Pakistan is deeply disturbing. There needs to be serious introspection of the causes of this ugly face of society. What are we teaching at home and in schools, our laws, how laws are implemented etc. Women cannot be left feeling insecure."

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif said that he was deeply disturbed at the harassment of a young woman and her companions by hundreds of people at Greater Iqbal Park in Lahore.

"Deeply disturbed at the harassment of a young woman and her companions by hundreds of people at Greater Iqbal Park in Lahore. What is more worrying is the direction our society is headed in. The recent anti-women incidents are a reminder that malaise is deep-rooted. Very Shameful!"

In a tweet, PML-N vice -president Maryam Nawaz said: "Heart-wrenching scenes at Minar-e-Pakistan warrant collective introspection. We as parents, teachers and leaders need to reflect upon the upbringing of our youngsters to make public spaces safe for women. Those involved must be dragged to justice to create deterrence for future."
